Gain a thorough, comprehensive understanding of your organisation’s overall vulnerability exposure, with detailed predictions of where an attack is most likely to take place.
Bridewell’s Vulnerability Management Service identifies areas vulnerable to attack and supports organisation’s in taking measures to shore up these gaps by improving their cyber security posture. The service is driven by insights from numerous assessment tools and threat intelligence and integrates them into a singular data set and risk model that guides the entire vulnerability management lifecycle.
By using contextual information and threat intelligence, Bridewell will prioritise vulnerabilities that require action and, throughout the engagement, our team will manage and track the remediation, mitigation and risk processes to ensure that risks are reduced across the environment.
- Complete Asset Visibility - The integration of multiple tools and technologies allows Bridewell to build a rich view of the assets a company owns. This allows our analysts to understand and treat risk with an informed view of their actual asset footprint.
- Extensive CNI Experience - Our analysts leverage their experience working across CNI to address common vulnerabilities in your sector.
- Prioritised Remediations and Risk Based Scoring - Bridewell’s risk-based scoring system allows our analysts to prioritise remediations along with the acceptance and re-evaluation of risks.
- Fully Managed - Bridewell provides vulnerability management as a service (VMaaS), taking full ownership of relevant responsibilities.
Key Challenges Addressed
For most organisations, asset visibility is the principal challenge within their vulnerability management program. Without an accurate inventory of the assets contained within their organisation, it is impossible to know what vulnerabilities may exist and what needs to be patched.
This is particularly challenging for organisations with large OT or ICS environments, where traditional IT tooling doesn’t work and different assets may have been added or removed over time without an established onboarding process.
Even with a complete view of these assets, organisations can’t patch everything all at once and may lack the insight or expertise to prioritise remediations appropriately to mitigate risks in a suitable order.
Our data privacy specialists will work with you to review your data processing activities to ensure that all personal data is being handled in accordance with regulations.
While using the UK & EU GDPR as a benchmark, the assessment will also note all applicable nuances of global data privacy legislation applicable to your organisation. This includes other legislation and standards such as the Data Protection Act and PECR. A GDPR Gap Analysis from Bridewell can also be used as an external audit of their compliance status and act as a complement to an internal audit, if one has already been performed.
Using contextual information about your business objectives and risks, Bridewell will action the most critical and exploitable items first.

How it Works
Backed by years of vulnerability testing experience, our analysts tailor the following methodology to the needs of your business.
Discover: Our analysts start by creating an accurate inventory of all your organisation’s assets, including OT and ICS environments. With a complete view of these assets, they will then perform vulnerability scans and assessments to identify any areas of risk.
Assess and Prioritise: After discovery, Bridewell actively investigates and assesses any emerging vulnerabilities to prioritise them with a risk-based score based on the following criteria:
- System Criticality
- External exposure
- Exploitability (and potential)
- Threat Intelligence
- Compensating Controls
- Risk Management
Report: Tactical, strategic and operational reporting and trend analysis are key part of our scanning process. It can take many forms, from point-in-time critical response advisories to weekly, monthly and quarterly briefings.
Remediate: Our team coordinates remediation efforts with your business units and key stakeholders, ensuring the correct recommendations are carried out, from patch management to alternative options as appropriate.
